The Northern Rockies Program on Women in the Curriculum. Final Report.
Arranged into six parts, the report presents a program overview describing the allocation of seed money, resources, training, and technical assistance to 10 postsecondary campuses in Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming to assist in the integration of women's studies into the curriculum. Following the program description (part 1), part 2 focuses on the purpose of the program, which was to discover the conditions necessary for a successful campus-based effort. Part 3 describes previous efforts in this region to integrate women's studies into the curriculum and presents demographic characteristics of the participating campuses. Part 4 identifies four categories of program goals: (1) to integrate the study of women into core or departmental curricula, (2) to conduct faculty development programs aimed at general course revision, (3) to build networks of faculty interested in research on women and in transformation of the traditional curriculum, and (4) to expand educational options for women students in nontraditional curricula. Part 5 describes short-term outcomes concerning faculty/administrator cooperation, network development, faculty awareness, resource development, policies affecting women students, visibility of women's studies, student awareness, and professional development. The final part concludes that support from the local administration, women's studies expertise, a core group of committed individuals, and an impetus for reform are essential to program success. (LH)
